Are recipe boxes passé? With the advent of all manner of apps and electronic systems for keeping your recipes organized, has the old-school recipe box been banished from your cupboard? Not if many of our readers have their way; I happen to know more than a few of you still love your index cards (and even reformat our recipes to fit that classic format!). If you still want your recipes out where you can touch them, these three boxes are for you.

I love all of Rifle Paper Co.’s modern, pretty recipe boxes (see them all here) — but especially this one, with its slightly retro bird-and-flowers print.

Richwood makes lovely wood boxes, and they have a smart feature: when you turn the lid upside down it reveals a groove that lets your recipe card sit upright.

One Canoe Two also makes quite a few lovely boxes, but this berry basket-inspired box caught my eye. Wouldn’t it look sweet on an open shelf in the kitchen?

Do you keep your recipes in a box, still? What does it look like?
